  1. The issue of veg vs meat is moot point. Even Gurbani says: "who is to say what is a green vegetables and what is meat?" What is spoken against is the hypocrisy. If you eat meat then fine. It's NOT against Sikhi! (Only meat that has been ritualistically killed is against Sikhi. And that has nothing to do with the meat, it's the idea of sacrificing and ritual.) If you eat veg, then fine be vegetarian. I am vegetarian, but I eat eggs and dairy. However I won't tell someone they can't eat meat. My choice to be veg is that I can't *personally* eat something that was killed.
  2. WJKK WJKF since I can't contact everyone I built a friendship with on here I will just put here if you wish to get hold of me you can find me at SPN. Wish you all well.

    Proof that Bibis can do seva during menstruation!

  4. Page 484, Line 15 ਸਾਚਾ ਨਾਵਣੁ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Sācẖā nāvaṇ gur kī sevā. ||1|| rahā▫o. The true cleansing bath is service to the Guru. ||1||Pause|| For all of you who think Bibis are dirty during menstruation, it says the TRUE cleansing bath is SERVICE (SEVA) TO THE GURU!!!!! So how can you ignore Gurbani, and say that a Bibi is dirty and is unfit to do seva at that time?? You are directly ignoring Gurbani!
  5. Banning these topics means you just don't want to talk about it. Then nothing changes, and if there are injustices being done, nothing ever happens to fix them because everything thinks the topics should be banned. Can you imagine if lets say the idea of sati, if nobody was allowed to speak against it, and all the men wanted everyone to just shut up about it, women would be still throwing themselves into funeral pyres. Telling women they cant do seva while menstruating is an injustice. Keeping ALL women from important positions such as Granthi, or disallowing ALL women to ever sit on tabiya (
  6. I have chatanga blocked so I only see his posts when you or others quote him. I had to do that awhile ago because of how he was treating me. so if he argues now, he's arguing with himself because I can't see what he posts. I used to have Paapiman blocked as well and only unblocked him so I could post counter to some of his ridiculous posts which might give new people wanting to find out about Sikhi, the wrong ideas. (Menstruation being one).
  7. Why is it that any topic which the Singhs feel strongly about regarding women get locked once they think they made their point? If they disagree certain members start screaming till the post gets locked, even when the original people discussing it do so sanely... It obviously needs to be discussed because: 1 in original times hygiene products were less and not easily available, meaning the Maryadas of that time were based on what the women at that time had available and not taking into account advances. 2 because of advances the meaning behind the original no longer holds true
  8. That's the problem. They won't. Remember when Hari Singh Randhawa entered a non Taksali gurdwara in Canada trying to tell the women they were impure dirty during menstruationand could not do seva? He did that in a non DDT gurdwara and all hell broke loose. He was trying to push Taksal ideology at non Taksalis. It didn't work but he was still trying to tell them they were wrong and he was right. I don't care if specific sampardas do whatever they want, I won't enter their gurdwaras. That's my choice. But as long as they don't try to run things and dictate what happens at our most holy an
  9. @kdsingh80 any girl who says they can't stand up during a period is lying. It's possible like anything else to have a medical issue and can cause painful periods but this is a medical issue and not normal. And in that case they should see a doctor, not use it as excuse to not stand up. If it was that bad they should have been in hospital, not at an event where they couldn't even stand. Seriously.... And 99.9999999999% of women do not do that. Guest there should be no rule at all. Let women themselves decide whether they think their hygiene is adequate. But there should not be a blanket
  10. I am not even debating veg vs non veg. It's the hypocrisy I am debating!! LOL If you eat meat eat meat.... as long as its not Halal etc. If you are veg eat veg... What I am against is on the one hand saying everyone MUST eat veg, but then condoning dairy industry. It's hypocrisy! If you are going to drink milk or use dairy products, then don't get all upset if the meat from the baby cows is used in a constructive way to feed people. As that is better than letting it rot because you think dairy is ok but meat is not. In short, it's the HYPOCRISY I am against. Not either
  11. What's funny is you are whinging about men taking a bit of the blame for repressing and controlling / dominating women, but you don't care about the literally thousands of years of misogyny which has done MUCH MUCH worse to women than any man will ever have to endure?? I agree with Neo this should not even be an issue. Why are these guys so worried about what's going on in some Singhni's kacheras when she is doing seva?
  12. But you are speaking the above almost as an excuse to purposely kill animals when it is not required. You can look for excuses to justify it all you want. My personal choice is to go the way of least death (needless deaths anyway) which is working towards vegan. And ask Paapiman (since we have have each other blocked and he cant see this) that if he is so keen on dairy industry even though the baby cows are killed in order to have milk production, then why is he so against eating that same meat which comes from those baby cows, when at least USING the meat for something means the baby c
  13. ^^ Exactly. But that's why some of these Gurdwaras don't allow women to do seva of SGGSJ at all, just to be sure that none are doing it while on their period. Easy way for them to prevent it is to just disallow women to do that seva at all. This includes akhand paaths, taking hukamnama, etc. But you are correct. If a Singh can not detect if a woman is on her period or not, then what does it matter? And why do these Singhs even care so much?
  14. Also, 'deeply resonates with one' might not resonate with another. Yet a different person might resonate with that person. Everyone's spiritual path is different, but the destination is the same. @Rock The Gurbani you quoted, lists qualities that ALL Gurmukhs are to have. We are to ALL remember God with every breath. And we are to ALL strive to actively do it. That means we all can be seen as Saints. What I am trying to get across is that the personalities who sit on a platform, patting heads of worshippers who are bowing to them. Those are to me, NOT what a Saint is. A Saint would realiz
  15. But the venerating is where we possibly are starting to encroach into idolatry... Only Waheguru should be venerated no? Yes we should respect someone we *perceive* to be higher spiritually than ourselves. But still, we might be wrong as human mind is prone to err and sometimes people are not who we think they are. And still yet, venerating an aspect of this duality existence, is still living in duality is it not? We should recognize that ultimate truth is ONE. If who we deem to be a Sant is in fact a true Sant (brahamgiani) then there will be no difference between God and them. So it's God we
  16. This is not true if care is taken in harvesting. Instead of huge factory farming practices with huge mechanized harvesters, smaller operations can ensure oversight of the crops better and harvest without killing. Of course accidental killing will always happen and is unavoidable... animals will always try to encroach where there is food growing. However, there is a HUGE difference between accidentally killing something and purposely killing it. It's called INTENT. And INTENT is what Waheguru is concerned with. Some examples, organic farming vs one where heavy pesticide used etc. result
  17. Okay we have determined a Sant is entirely subjective. A Sant to me, might not be a Sant to you and vice versa, so it's someone who is special to you who helps YOU in your own spiritual journey. That means every one of us could be a Sant to someone else as long as we help someone else on their path. It's not a title or position. If it's not a title or position, then why do many treat it as such? To the point of lavishing in people bowing to them etc? Why do their followers go to the point of worshipping their now departed Sant's personal possessions, or even attributing spiritual powers
  18. Its not me who claimed these things lol. I am just quoting the news stories I read. I am not saying he was or wasn't. I am just illustrating a point that he may or may not have been. And how can we ever tell. He was just an example because many people think he was. And many people think he wasn't. So was he? or was he not? That just illustrated my point on the fact that human judgement errs. Both can't be right.
  19. But I don't think there is some bright blinding light as Rock stated. I think it's more along lines of what Amardeep stated. That its a personal assessment of someone who might have helped you on your spiritual path etc. But it's not an official title etc. So going by that, anyone who helps others on their spiritual path are all Sants... in that sense then I guess we all can be a Sant to at least someone.
  20. Please note I am NOT saying Sants don't exist. What I am saying is that NONE of us are qualified to judge someone is a Sant or not. I could call someone a Sant because they have helped me on my spiritual path and they are in my eyes a hugely spiritual person. You might think they are not. You might call someone a Sant who I don't think is. And the genuine Sants I don't think look for the attention but remain humble and filled with humility. I don't think a true Sant is one who sits on a platform handing out blessings with people bowing to them and/or looking for microphone and camera
  21. So the author of the article linked in the OP has stated Sikhi is basically just Hinduism ( or a sect of Hinduism) and that we should accept it. If so then why such a fight from most Sikhs who vehemently state that Sikhi DISTINCT? Is it true anyway what they said about khanda being a Hindu symbol? I never knew that before.
